Kids. The lifeblood of our hearts, embodiments of our dreams for the future, our hopes for all humanity. Yet so many of them just want to have fun despite so many serious challenges disability can bring. Thanks to the generous donations of people who believe in our mission to bring fun to everyone, we are opening the 2012 Children’s Grant Program.
In what we hope will be the first of many, you can now apply to receive one piece of assistive technology courtesy of the AbleGamers Foundation.
To enter, please visit the Children’s Grant Page and fill out the form with as much detail as possible. Caregivers must include their name, e-mail address, physical address and phone number, along with the child's name and disability. Also, please note the box at the bottom of the form to fill out any pertinent information you feel the selection committee should be aware of when considering your application.
“Thrilled doesn't quite describe how I feel about the foundation being able to give away these grants,” said Mark Barlet, President and Founder of the AbleGamers Foundation. “It’s thanks to the outstanding generosity of our financial supporters that we are able to continue doing these grants. I am extremely optimistic that as more people find out about our wonderful community and amazing foundation that we will be able to not only continue giving out these grants but give them out more often.”
“I couldn't be happier that our next grant will be going to a child in need,” said Steve Spohn, Editor-In-Chief of the AbleGamers Foundation’s community website. “Children are endearing to everyone, but especially to those of us who grew up disabled. We appreciate and know all too well how difficult it is growing up disabled. I hope this provides a little bit of joy for a child who really needs it.”
Applications are open now until the end of August. Don't let this opportunity pass you by. Fill out the form at http://www.ablegamers.com/ablegamers-2012-grant.html for your chance to be the winner of the 2012 AbleGamers Foundation Children’s Grant Program
